Bananas are such a great ingredient to use in baking for a natural sweetener, great flavour and moist outcome. I didn't think it would be difficult to find a healthy banana muffin recipe and I found it on Ambitious Kitchen's blog, their 'Skinny Banana Chocolate muffins'.
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup honey
1 tbsp vanilla
1 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
1 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used a 64% chocolate bar, chopped into small chunks)
Optional: The one thing I changed from the original recipe was the addition of oats. It dried the batter out from the batch I baked without, but it was a nice alternative.
Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
Mix together flour, baking soda and salt.
Add bananas, honey, vanilla, oil, egg, milk and yogurt to a blender. Blend on high from about 1 minutes, until the batter is smooth and creamy.
Add dry ingredients to wet until just combined.
Fold in the chocolate.
Divide batter into muffin tin (greased) and bake for 20-25 minutes or until tooth pick comes out clean.
Note: My muffin tin was very small and they baked perfectly by only 12 minutes. Be aware!
